Perhaps it’s a higher incidence of sexual deviance coupled with a low awareness or care that putting that deviance on display will have negative social consequences.

I think people may interpret his missteps as evidence of being a normie, but everything about the man screams autist savant.

lobotomy : lobectomy :: phalloplasty : ?

Pro reunification sentiments went from about 11% to about 7%: https://esc.nccu.edu.tw/PageDoc/Detail?fid=7801&id=6963

Why suppress this? I can understand suppressing such writings generally, but AFAIK this is the first time such a thing has actually been kept under wraps for any length of time.

I doubt anyone would be inspired by it, and it's certainly not going to spark a movement or any kind of adoration for the shooter like we saw with Elliott Rodger.

Maybe Crowder isn't printing a genius rhetorical flourish, but I really doubt it given the kind of thinking on display.

The typical case for a whole lot of my relatives seems to be that they just stop doing much of anything. During their working years they worked and watched TV. Once social security kicks in they have enough resources to survive and entertain themselves mostly with TV, and that's what they do. If they wind up in a nursing home, they just have a smaller TV, possibly with headphones so they don't disturb a roommate.

I would like that vibrant multi-generational life, but it's not all up to me. Luckily my wife's family is the complete opposite of this.

There exists a set of cruel practices for which the state would forcibly remove my child from my custody, but which are permissible for a "treatment center?"

When all you have are taxes and subsidies, everything looks like a... a thing you tax and subsidize.

See in the OP where the response to lack of nurses available to train other nurses is that we'll spend $75 million on it.

My first instinct was to check Wikipedia to see if the blue-footed booby is in danger. No sign on the article that a rename is afoot.

The penduline tit also appears to be safe, for now.

Though given that donglegate actually happened, I would think names such as these would scare off more people than names of human beings, especially innocuous names with no negative connotations of their own like Anna or Lewis.

In my tech career I've always treated monitors that have lost signal with the same priority as the monitored value exceeding some critical bounds. The idea being that without signal, the monitored value very well could be in a critical state, and loss of signal itself could be caused by some greater issue.

I have no military experience. Does the military not do something similar? For example, a lost camera feed must be treated as an attack until proven otherwise.

Surely the terra itself isn’t sacred?

The religious Jews would not agree.

"The Lord had said to Abram, 'Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.'" (Genesis 12:1-7 NIV)

"On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram and said, 'To your descendants I give this land, from the Wadi of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates—the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaites, Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites and Jebusites.'" (Genesis 15:18-21 NIV)

"'So I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land into a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey—the home of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites.'" (Exodus 3:8 NIV)

"The Lord said to Moses, 'Command the Israelites and say to them: ‘When you enter Canaan, the land that will be allotted to you as an inheritance is to have these boundaries...’" (Numbers 34:1-12 NIV)

"See, I have given you this land. Go in and take possession of the land the Lord swore he would give to your fathers—to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob—and to their descendants after them." (Deuteronomy 1:8 NIV)

"'Moses my servant is dead. Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them—to the Israelites.'" (Joshua 1:2-6 NIV)

No released photographic evidence, but officials have told us they have seen the photos.

I assume out of respect for the dead they're not being released. If my child were beheaded I wouldn't want those photos out on the Internet, either. I wouldn't really care if it assuaged conspiracy theorists, people would just say they're AI-generated anyway.

IDF says this is an intercept of Hamas: https://twitter.com/IDF/status/1714548529538953637

Guy on the intercept say the rockets were being shot from a cemetery behind the hospital.

Twitter speculation is that these rockets were fuel-heavy since they were supposed to hit very distant targets.

Also makes sense given how much was damaged by fire versus wrecked by the blast.

This is far closer, from the ground: https://twitter.com/SanaSaeed/status/1714374438475399596

Anyone have comparison videos for what a PIJ rocket sounds like?

edit: found one that's plausibly a match on audio: https://youtube.com/watch?v=JS18N7qMX00

Al-Jazeera footage with a closer view: https://twitter.com/jconricus/status/1714376318136021443

It appears they zoom in on a rocket that gets intercepted or fails mid-air. A flash from below is seen, then zoom out, then what is supposedly the hospital explodes.

If we didn't support Israel the state would have likely fallen to Soviet-aligned AK-wielders. With our support Israel remains America-aligned and IWI-equipped.

Cold War checks on Communist expansion have momentum.

Airbnb not necessary, you can just get a hotel room outside city limits.

They shot more than 6,000 people and only 183 died? What were they being shot with?

That’s about 33:1.

These ratios are similarly odd:

The large-scale killing and maiming of 30 March last year, when 18 people were killed and over 700 people shot, and of 14 May, when 60 people were killed and over 1100 people shot, must not be repeated. “The shooting must stop,” said Sara Hossain.

For comparison, Steven Paddock killed 60 and wounded 400, about 7.6:1. And he wasn’t even aiming at anyone in particular. The report says that protesters were shot by military snipers.

Israel had already killed an estimated 250 Palestinians, including 47 children, this year alone

If I search for "Palestinians killed by Israeli military" and set a limit on results no later than 10/1/2023 to keep the current war out, I see stories like these:

https://www.cnn.com/2023/09/20/middleeast/israeli-military-palestinians-intl/index.html https://www.cnn.com/2023/02/22/middleeast/israeli-raid-nablus-west-bank-intl/index.html https://www.npr.org/2023/01/26/1151627428/palestinians-say-israeli-troops-kill-9-in-west-bank-raid

This smells like the stats on police killings in America. The ratio is very lopsided in favor of the trained professionals, which should not be at all surprising. Similarly, if the targets submitted to arrest, then there would be no lethal violence.

And "children" is conveniently ambiguous as teenagers are plenty capable of presenting themselves as a lethal threat.

Don't merely flood the tunnels, flood the area. Then you don't need to locate the tunnels. You also create a tactical asymmetry for fighters unable to equip themselves with the proper footwear.

High capacity seawater pumps exist: https://www.tobeepump.com/sea-water-pumps/tsh-large-seawater-pump.html

At 14,400 cubic meters per hour, you could flood a football pitch a meter deep in about half an hour.

I find no cognitive dissonance in my enjoying the fruits of the American Revolution while also condemning modern-day leftist revolutionaries that have so far only managed to hold a few blocks in Seattle for part of a summer.

This makes me wonder where Israel/Palestine sympathies lie among YIMBY activists.

Just prior to the pandemic I was toying with the idea of investing in multi family rental properties.

Thank God I didn’t. Even with the pandemic moratoriums lifted, our county deliberately underfunds eviction courts so that they hear only six cases per day. Last week I read a story of a guy who owns a house but has to live in his van because he can’t expeditiously evict the non-paying assholes he was unfortunate enough to have as tenants.

Marxists have never been “in power” but somehow their violence is both forgiven and largely forgotten.

We can see this happening now. The press will be talking about Jan 6 for decades to come, but won’t mention the violence of the preceding summer save for the terrible injustice of the Rittenhouse acquittal.
